Maria Sibylla Merian was a fine painter and superb naturalist, one of the first woman scientists we know of. Her observations of insects and their relationships with plants revolutionized botany and zoology. One of her finest pieces, the Scarlet Ibis measures 14.5″ x 20″ on 14,16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas. We are happy to select appropriate wool or silk threads to help complete this fine work. Mix with other Merian images and delight your home! Available in two larger sizes, as well as a Memo Board and Tote size. Please contact us if you would like us to add the threads of your choice. Pease indicate your mesh preference in the note section at checkout.
